I have heard a lot of places in Mexico only allow Bio degradable suntan lotion. Does anyone know what brands are allowed I have heard "Natures gate" and "kiss my face" are these ok. does anyone know what brand I should bring?Nature's Gate and Smartshield should not be used.
Smartshield contains Octinoxate, Octisalate, Avobenzone, Octocrylene, Padimate, and Propylparaben - all shown to be harmful to coral reefs and contribute to disease and bleaching.
Nature's Gate Aquablock contains Octinoxate, Oxybenzone, both shown in recent studies to contribute to coral reef bleaching and disease. The other Nature's Gate products are worse, Aquablock is the best one for reefs, but there are definitely better choices.
Kiss My Face does contain one ingredient that is not reef-friendly, but it's a minor ingredient, so it's pretty good.
MexiTan, Caribbean Sol, UV Natural, Soleo Organics, and Luvea Neutrals are solid choices.
Your sunblock should not be used if it contains any of the following ingredients or is not specifically labelled as biodegradable.
Hope this helps, have a great time!
Thanks and smooth sailing.

As I will not be arriving by airplane, does security at the ports. (Canaveral and Lauderdale specifically) allow you to carry larger bottles of suntan oil. IE eight ounce bottles, or is that restriction only for airports?That's not a problem. If you are not flying, you can carry any size bottle of suntan lotion with you. The ports really only care about weapons, drug and alcohol and that's what they screen for. Your suntan lotion will be safe.
Thanks and smooth sailing.
